Over the past few years, Kesha has been through some tough times. The singer has been embroiled in some very public legal battles with her record label, Sony, and the producer Dr Luke, who she has accused of sexually, verbally, and physically assaulting her.

Due to the nature of her recording contract, Kesha has been unable to perform any of the material she released as Ke$ha, and is not allowed to record and release new music without the permission of Dr Luke and Sony.

Earlier this year, and with permission from Dr Luke, Kesha recorded a remix of “True Colors” with producer Zedd. The singer also performed a powerful rendition of Bob Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me, Babe” at this year’s Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

What’s so inspiring is that through all of this Kesha has never given up her end goal; all she wants to do is release and perform music. She’s stuck with her truth and is dedicated to being an artist.

So, it comes as great news that Kesha has announced that she’s going on tour with a new music project: Kesha and the Creepies.

Taking to Instagram to announce the new band, Kesha wrote:

The short tour is set to travel the U.S. this summer, starting in Las Vegas on 23 July and closing on 1 October in Los Angeles.

We’re so glad that Kesha is getting to be, somewhat, creatively free, and is able to express herself while she deals with the atrocities of her ongoing legal problems.

Tickets for Kesha and the Creepies tour are on sale now.
